I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    A president who tweets incessantly, engages in name-calling, gripes about toilets, and is still supported by many. I’m going back to bed!

    We are simply engaged in another round of class warfare; Economic class warfare, which began in 1981. The haves are winning.

    I know, and feel your anger at what is happening to this country, but may I suggest to you NOT to become like those on the Right. Ever since Newt Gingrich the Right has lowered the bar on political discourse and engaged in corrupt and scandalous behavior right before our very eyes, and are unapologetic about it. Those who are offended and angered must not stoop to their level. I have read your posts often, and have found you to be knowledgeable and reasoning. You are best when you post like the educated person you seem to be.
